I get the following error message when I try to use the mysql odbc driver from a third party application on redhat linux (5.1):

relocation error: /usr/lib/libmyodbc3.so: symbol mysql_odbc_escape_string, version libmysqlclient_15 not defined in file libmysqlclient.so.15 with link time reference

I have the following mysql odbc packages installed:

I read somewhere that there was a bug with the 5.0.77 mysql client programs so I uninstalled package mysql-5.0.77-4.el5_5.3.i386 and installed package mysql-5.0.45.el5.i386 and the error went away.

It turns out this error message was being caused by the ordering of the directories in LD_LIBRARY_PATH. I had 2 directories specificed and when I reversed the order, the error went away.
